Sunday, December 11, Washington UCC will provide up to 100 families with gift items and basic necessities. We hope to give about 350 children an outfit, socks, underwear, gloves, hat and a few toys. Each family will receive a box of food.
The Christ Child was born in poverty and given gifts by the magi. What better way to celebrate His birth than to do the same for these children of God! This is where we need your help!
Special Request: We request no violent games or toys. Do not wrap the gifts (but DO include wrapping paper, etc.). We will do all of the wrapping.
